Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

BEING MORTAL by Atul Gawande

Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End - Atul Gawande
  Interesting book about preparing for the end of life. He brought up important points of when to have the talk and who to have the talk with to make the decisions that may become necessary at the end of your own or someone else's life and to do it before it becomes a necessity and everyone is under stress. I liked how he had stories of those who had made the decisions versus those who waited. I also appreciate the insights into what a person wants at the end of their life. It makes me think what I need to do for my own care when that time comes. Sensitively done but important to put the thoughts into words.
